Tuesday, 05 March 2013 - 18:51


Sri Lanka Cricket has instructed the Chief Executive Officer of SLC Ajith Jayasekara to submit a report regarding the questionable behaviour of Lasith Malinga in the presence of media personnel.


A number of journalists had gathered near the SLC headquarters yesterday in order to obtain the views of Sri Lankan cricketers following their contract signing.


While other players were cordial with media personnel, Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga unwantedly lashed out at them.




Meanwhile, Sri Lankan test batsman Thilan Samaraweera today forwarded a letter to Sri Lanka Cricket stating that he is planning to retire from international cricket.


Samaraweera who has played 81 test matches has amassed 5462 runs and has represented Sri Lanka in 53 ODIs.
